Green Day to be featured at the Tony Awards

By Roger Friedman

HollywoodNews.com: The Tony Awards won’t be boring this year, that’s for sure.

The June 13th telecast on CBS will feature Green Day, the punk group that inspired Best Musical nominee, “American Idiot.”

Plus, the Tonys just announced they’re bringing back performances from the Best Plays — new and revived. This will include Denzel Washington and Viola Davis from Fences; Justin Bartha, Anthony LaPaglia and Tony Shalhoub from Lend Me a Tenor; Jan Maxwell and Rosemary Harris of The Royal Family; Liev Schreiber and Scarlett Johansson from A View from the Bridge; Laura Benanti and Michael Cerveris from In the Next Room or the vibrator play; Patrick Breen and Patrick Heusinger of Next Fall; Laura Linney and Brian d’Arcy James from Time Stands Still; and Alfred Molina and Eddie Redmayne from Red.
